Minimalist porcelain with lovely faces: works by the Chinese artist from Taiwan
Taiwanese artist Fan Yanting creates expressive little faces in ceramic cups, mugs, vases, and saucers by putting emotive little faces on his minimalist porcelain pieces.
“I empty my mind when I’m sculpting the human faces. I might plan the pottery shape and maybe where I’d like to position the face, but I don’t start with specific character designs in mind. When people see different faces, they project their ideas onto them. Maybe a face will remind someone of an old friend, a family member, or the coffee shop owner down the street. By leading viewers to experience everyday items with different faces, I hope to explore this phenomenon in my work.” the artist commented.
